Ecological Happiness

How can reconnecting with nature support our wellbeing and help create a happier world for all of us?

When we pretend we're separate from the earth, this causes enormous human unhappiness and damage to our planet. In reality, we are all part of nature.

At this special event, environmental activist Vandana Shiva will share how we can only be truly happy when we care for the natural world around us. Our happiness and the happiness of the earth are one and the same. By learning to recognise our inter-connectedness as part of "one earth family" we can create true joy in our lives and for those around us too.

Vandana will also share her insights into how we can be activists for positive social change and help create a better world in our own small ways. Together we can reclaim our humanity as part of the precious planet earth we share - and together we can reclaim our happiness.

This conversation with Dr Mark Williamson was recorded at a live Action for Happiness event for International Women's Day on the 8th March 2023.
